Serving times have changed to 11:30am-1:00pm Monday through Friday
Friday's meal bag will contain meals for Saturday and Sunday as well. We understand that no time is perfect for everyone. Please know that we have considered this choice and are doing what we think is best for meal quality and to increase meals served, which directly effects the funding for this department.

"Good nutrition supports successful students"
Welcome to the Nutrition Services homepage! Snowline JUSD will be continuing the Community Eligibility Provision
(CEP) for the 2020/21 school year. All enrolled students of Snowline Joint Unified School District will receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at no charge, whether or not they qualify. The school district will need every household to complete an Educational Benefit Form to insure their funding for the upcoming year. Please contact your school site office for forms and more information regarding the process. Educational Benefit Forms will be available on July 1st, 2020.
If your student keeps money on a lunch account, we encourage you to monitor it closely! You may view the activity on your student's account through www.schoolcafe.com. Remember, you may also use School Cafe to deposit money into a student’s account free of charge (see the school cafe page for more information). If you have any problems using the website please don't hesitate to contact our office at 760-868-5817 ext. 10514.
Updated Meal Charge Policy.....(SJUSD Board Policy AR 3551)
"At the beginning of the school year, parents/guardians shall be notified of the district's meal payment policies and encouraged to prepay for second meals or A la carte items whenever possible.
(cf. 1113-District and school web sites)
"...Parents/guardians shall be notified whenever their account has a zero balance. Students will receive the same reimbursable meal that is offered to all students if the student needs to charge a meal. Snowline JUSD allows Elementary students to charge $ 4.00 on their student accounts. Middle and High school students are allowed to charge up to $ 5.00 on their accounts. Second meals or snacks are not allowed to be posted against daily charge limits. Parents and guardians will be notified weekly via phone and/or mail regarding their student's unpaid meal balance that is due. If a parent or guardian wishes to prevent their student from charging on their meal account, the parent or guardian may request in writing that a "block" be placed on a student's meal account. This "block" can prohibit purchasing a meal or limit the amount of charges on a student's account.
Emails may be sent to:
Please include student name, school, and student ID#. You may also call us at 760-868-5817 ext. 10513
In cases of repeated non-payment by a student, the Superintendent or designee may contact parents/guardians to discuss the reasons for the nonpayment. The Superintendent or designee may evaluate individual circumstances to determine if the student's parents/guardians need assistance completing an application for free or reduced-price meals or need a referral to social services."
